Alopecia (Senryu)

Hair floats down like snow

Im a tree losing my leaves

Hibernation time

I appear to be losing hair.  I brush and loads of it flits down to the ground.  I run my fingers through it and a handful is caught in my fingers.  Distressing!  Having once lost my hair to chemotherapy, I feel that once was enough.  I think the stress of my dad’s death has caught up with me.

Senryu: similar to Haiku in form but while Haiku has themes related to nature the Senryu highlights feelings and relationships
